Sample text

New York Thomas A , Chess S, Birch H G 1970 The origin of personality. Sci Am 223(2):102-109 DISCUSSION Wolkind: On the question of methodology, you’ve shown that there are discrepancies about the temperamental categories to which various descriptive items belong, but are you content about t h e temperamental categories themselves? Do we have enough evidence that there really is, for example, a category of general ‘rhythmicity’ for a baby o r infant, and that all items asking about this are dealing with the same dimensions?

Swedish version of the Thomas and Chess questionnaire Drs A . Thomas and S. Chess kindly granted us permission to use and to translate directly into Swedish their parental questionnaire for children 3-7 years of age (Thomas & Chess 1977). The questionnaire contains 72 questions, with eight questions representing each of the nine NYLS temperament variables. g. ‘21. My child likes to try new foods’) followed by a seven-point answer scale from 1, representing ‘hardly ever‘, to 7, representing ‘almost always’.

On the other hand, such estimates are the very substance of the research programme of Robert Plomin and others. The apparent paradox is that both schools accept a transactional model to explain the process resulting in and consequent upon temperamental differences. This difference probably stems from the emphasis on the development of individuals by Thomas & Chess. and from the population orientation of the behavioural genetics approach.
